Drafted in the 22nd round (670th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2006 (signed for $675,000)
Rohrbough was somewhat unknown in high school back in Oregon, as he'd flash power stuff from the left side but went just 7-5 as a senior and struggled with inconsistent command. The Braves drafted-and-followed him to Western Nevada Community College, in the wood-bat Scenic West Athletic Conference, and he blossomed, working with the same pitching coach (Dennis Banks) who helps tutor Devil Rays farmhand Jacob McGee in the offseason. While he's not McGee, Rohrbough has flashed a pair of plus pitches, with a fastball that has touched 94 and sits in the 88-91 mph range consistently. He curveball is his out pitch; it's a power spike with excellent depth, and he's shown the ability to throw it for strikes more frequently. He's also shown the makings of a good changeup. The Braves were expected to make a strong run at Rohrbough in the last year of the draft-and-follow rule.
